Probably easier to find a large bluebottle and train it to respond to whistled commands like a sheepdog. At a place I used to work a few years ago we used to immobilise bluebottles with freezer spray and then attach little tissue paper streamers to them with superglue, They would recover after a minute or so and fly around the large office with the streamers behind them, usually with insulting comments about workmates.

DARPA just spent millions in funding on an ornithoptor that size. It can't yet pick things up.
